What exactly is the "Shopping cart trick"?

Nov 30, 2016

Go online and add stuff to your cart as if you were really shopping. Then go through the checkout process. You should get a preapproval pop up before you get to the last screen if it works for you.

It's an ok card. Got approved with 619 fico score with $250 limit in January 2016. Haven't got an increase yet. I did get reviewed at application and had to call a number for approval to verify my identity.

Pulled a Hard Inquiry on my Account?
LaMoogan Cardholder

I have never had problems with my credit history and I liked their clothes so I applied for a card. Before applying I asked what type of inquiry it required, and they told me just a soft credit check at more. Followed through and with my score was given a $2500 limit. When the card showed up here on Credit Karma, my score dropped 28 points because they had done a hard inquiry on my account. Furious and am going to try to dispute it.

Seriously besides unscrupulous companies, what major bank have you ever heard of that will approve you, especially with that type of credit line without a hard pull on your credit? Anytime a lender grants or extends credit it will always be a hard pull. Some credit unions even hard pull to open a checking account.

Soft pull to EX (shopping cart trick)
1G3girl Cardholder

This card is now reporting to all three bureaus! My FICO has increased with responsible use. I call to inquire on all my cards daily to verify balances, CL and available credit before shopping.

Anonymous Cardholder

I was approved for this card with a 560 credit score. My credit limit was $300 when i first applied. I usually ask for a credit limit every two months are so and always get approved for the increase. Credit limit now at $2000 after 10 months

Great credit builder for great clothes
artson1966 Cardholder

Went to site to purchase my son in law a new shirt and I got this pop up with your approved for 250 plus 10% off today's purchase. With my credit destroyed after the 2008 economic doom I lost my job of 20 years. Took me 3 years to get a decent job in the mean time my credit suffered dropping into the mid 500's. So getting any credit now is awesome. Thank you Buckles.
